Our Ethos

At Wee Care we believe that the first years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. These are the cornerstone years that shape a child’s future.

We believe that children grow, learn and develop rapidly when they receive love, warmth, attention, encouragement, mental stimulation and nutritious well-balanced meals, with this in mind we promote in all of our nurseries:

  • a happy, fun-loving and relaxed atmosphere
  • a warm, loving, safe and caring environment
  • the use of positive language and behaviour at all times
  • dedicated, professional, long-term and highly qualified staff
  • healthy eating
  • the creation of a home from home-like environment
  • flexibility in childcare options
  • equality, irrespective of gender, race, religion or disability

Our People

Lauren Burton  (Weecare King's Road branch)

Lauren Burton (King's Road branch)

Hello, my name is Lauren Burton and I am the Coordinator at Kings Road. I joined the Wee Care team in 2014 after working for 11 years at a local toy store. I began working in our Toddler Branch where I completed my Level 3 diploma in Children's Care, Learning and Development and worked my way up to Unit Head. I moved to Kings Road in 2018 to take on the challenging role of Deputy Coordinator and was delighted to be reunited with some friends I had cared for as toddlers.

I hold a Level 5 diploma in Children's Care, Learning and Development and I am the Designated Safeguarding Officer for Kings Road. I am trained in Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Health and Safety and Fire Awareness. I also hold Level 3 certificates in ASD Conditions and Child Psychology.

I am a busy Mum of three and my family and I spend a lot of time camping and exploring the great outdoors. Outdoor play provides a multitude of benefits to young children. It helps to build confidence and actively promotes physical development, motivation and creativity. We have a fantastic (award winning) outdoor space here at Kings Road filled with a variety of challenging equipment, toys and natural resources.

It's a wonderful thing to be able to come to work every day and enjoy it. We have a great team here and every day is filled with fun and laughter, I am excited to see what the future will bring!

Have a question?



"It's our daughter's last day today, she has been going to Wee Care since she was 10 months old. It's the end of an era! I just want to thank all of the staff for their kindness, and for giving my daughter a home from home, in a safe and caring environment - with the added bonus of having lots of wee pals to get messy with :). She's laughed, loved and played lots.........and is just growing up too fast! Thanks for all that you do."
